This paper looks at the effects of hypertext as a medium of learning English through reading comprehension, including pedagogical aspects and the relationship between attitude towards and the use of hypertext. It summarizes a pilot study of the use of hypertext in a university level reading course in EFL. Several major questions are the basis for this paper and the pilot study: 1.What will be the students’ perception towards reading through technology? 2. Will the teaching of reading comprehension using hypertext result in greater gains in proficiency than teaching with traditional text-based materials?
